How to Convert Microhenries to Henries

To convert a microhenry measurement to a henry measurement, divide the electrical inductance by the conversion ratio. One henry is equal to 1,000,000 microhenries, so use this simple formula to convert:

henries = microhenries ÷ 1,000,000

The electrical inductance in henries is equal to the microhenries divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 microhenries to henries using the formula above.
5,000,000 μH = (5,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 H

Microhenries and henries are both units used to measure electrical inductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Microhenries

One microhenry is equal to 1/1,000,000 of a henry, which is the inductance of a conductor with one volt of electromotive force when the current is increased by one ampere per second.

The microhenry is a multiple of the henry, which is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microhenries can be abbreviated as μH, for example 1 microhenry can be written as 1 μH.

Henries

One henry is equal to the inductance of a conductor in which there is one volt of electromotive force when the current through the conductor is increased by one ampere per second.[1]

The henry is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance in the metric system. Henries can be abbreviated as H, for example 1 henry can be written as 1 H.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends using "henries" as the plural form of the unit, however the usage of "henrys" is also common.[2]
